    The Delphian School is the most magical place I've ever been. I graduated in the class of 2020. As I approached graduation, the idea of leaving became more and more sad. This school had become my home, and the students and staff were my family. I've never seen or been a part of any other group that cares so much for the well-being and success of each individual. I decided to work at the school because I couldn't bring myself to leave the best place on Earth. My dream was to help other people find the beauty and happiness in life and in themselves that Delphian opened my eyes to, and I couldn't imagine any better way to do that than by joining the group that led me through my own beautiful education.

    This is an amazing school! I arrived in late 2013, and I graduated in the class of 2017. My years here were magical and life changing. I become a more competent and responsible person, and the opportunities I received in the program were phenomenal. If you want your child to succeed, then the best school for them to attend is this one. I just finished writing my book Comedy Is No Joke! The Stand-up Comics' Guide to Success, and I am moving my comedy show to LA later this September. I wouldn't have been able to accomplish these feats without the knowledge I gained at Delphian.
    I have four children who graduated from Delphian. All attended college, one is an engineer for the state of CA, one a professional singer/songwriter, another a Dr. of Psychology working with the disenfranchised, and one a housewife. All totally different career paths, all successful at what they do. I couldn't be happier with them. Delphian helped greatly to prepare them for higher education but, more importantly, it prepared them for the challenges of life.
